The East Central Community College football team will soon have a new head coach. Athletic director Chris Harris spoke with our own Wayne Burns Tuesday, saying the college hopes to announce a hire by the end of this week.
"We've been in a very intense search for a new head football coach," said Harris. "We've had a lot of interest in the job, and we've tried to take our time. We hope we'll come to some closure here within the week. That we'll find the man that's going to be our next coach."
The administration decided not to renew head coach Brian Anderson's contract in December. Anderson never won more than three games in his four seasons as head coach. Harris says he and his committee have been patient and methodical in searching for the next head coach.
